Nitin Gadkari, a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader, claimed, all the opposition parties are not democratic, while addressing a public rally at Uppal, Hyderabad, Telangana, on Sunday.
Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, addressing the public rally as a part of BJP’s campaign for the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections, pitched for a systematic government. He stated, the Congress, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) are family oriented parties.
Nitin Gadkari said, “The Congress is a private limited party of Gandhi family and the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is a private limited party of Chandrashekar Rao. They are not democratic parties and similarly, Chandrababu has also made his party a private limited party.”
Mr. Gadkari said, only the BJP is a democratic party and a party of workers. He also highlighted how a small time worker like him became the president of the BJP and a tea seller like Narendra Modi struggled and became the Prime Minister of India.
Nitin Gadkari spoke about his past and said, “My father was not an MLA nor my mother was an MP and a small-time worker like me I got the opportunity to sit on the (BJP president’s) chair, which was also occupied by A. B. Vajpayee once.”
Mr. Gadkari slammed all the other parties and alleged the leaders of these parties to be selfish. He said, the alliance between the Congress and the TDP is based on opportunity, not convictions.
Nitin Gadkari urged the public to vote for the BJP and strengthen the power of nationalism and development in Telangana. He appealed to the voters to think beyond caste, creed and religion.
In the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections, 119 seats will be contested for on the 7th of December and the results will be announced on the 11th of December.
